Current vs Previous Period to Date Comparison

Version 5

    Description:

    This workbook outlines methods of comparing Current Period to Date vs the Previous Period to Date based on 3 Parameters: Date Selection (Calendar Param), Period (List Param, i.e. Year, Quarter, Month) and N Periods Back (1 -100).

     

    Some of the techniques used in this workbook have been improved upon since its initial creation. I will be updating soon (2016-04-12 RZ)
